A community response to mental health & substance use


From our colleagues at Mad in Ireland:

Mad In Ireland have been interested in and reporting on developments in Ireland relating to service provision for people with interrelated substance use and mental health issues (Dual Diagnosis). For example, reporting on the summer 23 Oireachtas discussions and  offering a critical review on the Dual Diagnosis Clinical Programme launched in August 2023. We are delighted to repost this Dublin North, North East Recovery College podcast from the recent community development project in Dublin North Inner City about developing a recovery community. Whilst the project was local, the methodology, findings and indeed the broader context of the podcast itself can be generalised across the Island of Ireland. Watch this space for a summary of the project evaluation coming to Mad in Ireland soon.

MITUK’s mission is to serve as a catalyst for fundamentally re-thinking theory and practice in the field of mental health in the UK, and promoting positive change. We believe that the current diagnostically-based paradigm of care has comprehensively failed, and that the future lies in non-medical alternatives which explicitly acknowledge the causal role of social and relational conflicts, abuses, adversities and injustices.
